Joyce’s Lulu Bang Pop Up
Philadelphia has been on the rise with many food events, food entrepreneurs and new restaurants. The pop up restaurant concept has become increasingly popular in the Philadelphia food scene. I enjoy pop up restaurants. It gives people a chance to show everyone the culinary talents that they posses. A few lucky ladies were given that opportunity for eight consecutive weeks at the Common Table (located at 310 S. 48th Street Philadelphia, PA 19143). This is a featured program launched by the Dorrance H. Hamilton Center for Culinary Enterprises. These ladies (Jorrae Beard, Kelly Beard and Ashley Beard) are the creators and faces of Joyce’s Lulu Bang sauces.The grand opening of their pop up restaurant for Lulu Bang Burgers & Wangs took place on January 2, 2017. What a wonderful way to open up the new year! Now you know I couldn’t miss out on some good food and the chance to finally taste some of their popular sauce!
Upon my arrival, there was no doubt that the public had nothing but pure love for these ladies. The place was packed with people and tables filled. I arrived within one hour of opening and there was already a line. You could tell the kitchen was being flooded with orders. If an establishment is busy, that’s always a good thing!
After waiting to be seated, I viewed their menu and decided to go with the fried chicken breast burger and a side of fries. Being that this was their grand opening night, there was quite a wait for my entree. You what they say, good things come to those who wait! And let me tell you, it was definitely well worth it!
The fried chicken breast burger was incredible. The breast was a great size, fried perfectly and seasoned very well! Once I bit into it, my taste buds experienced a burst of juiciness and flavor! I ended up cutting it in half because it was a little too big for me to bite right into, but that’s all right with me!
As for my experience with the sauce, I chose the Asian Persuasion. Goodness gracious, I see why these sauces are so popular! This sauce had a hint of sweetness, a little spice and it was fantastic! If you haven’t picked up a jar of Lulu Bang sauce, please buy some! I now have a new favorite sauce in my life!
Congratulations to the ladies of the Lulu Bang Burgers & Wangs pop up restaurant! I’m so honored to have been apart of this grand opening. It was clear that many customers genuinely support what you ladies are doing and the love was clearly felt. I look forward to eating your food again!
